Stephan Ludwig has studied chemistry at the university of Giessen, Germany, and performed his Diploma and PhD thesis work in the field of influenza virology. After obtaining his PhD in 1993 he moved to the university of Würzburg to work in cancer research and signal transduction. More by chance than by purpose he started again to work with viruses in 1999, now combining his expertises in cell signaling and virology.
Stephan Ludwig gained a unique research profile in the area of cell biology of influenza virus infections, which is still his major research field today, now working as a full professor and director of the Institute of Molecular Virology at the Center of Molecular Biology of Inflammation at the University of Münster.
At TEDxMünster Stephan Ludwig will argue for a change in perspectives in the influenza research and and talk about new strategies that could induce a paradigm shift in combating influenza. – (Talk in English)
